Abstract

The article outlines ways that teachers could use the content in Biomes and Food Security to encourage their students to engage with higher order thinking. It firstly discusses how to describe and classify higher order thinking, and then argues that powerful knowledge develops the same ways of thinking. The article then discusses the higher order actions of explaining, analysing, synthesising and evaluating and how they can be applied to the content of the unit.
